2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan: What do you picture when you think of a Rolls-Royce? No doubt, you’re thinking of a stately grand tourer cruising around town transporting the elite from their suburban mansions to their downtown penthouses for the weekend. Well, that’s not necessarily inaccurate, but the arrival of the 2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan is altering that image forever. At least, it’s enriching it with new perspectives.
Enter: The Cullinan
It’s not an overstatement to say that the Rolls-Royce Cullinan is changing the way we see this iconic British luxury brand. One of the best ways to shatter those old illusions is to see the footage of the Cullinan surfing the sand dunes of the UAE in a promotional video. T.E. Lawrence first envisioned such an adventure: “A Rolls in the desert is above rubies.”
When you consider the hardware under the hood of any Rolls-Royce, especially the Cullinan, it shouldn’t be surprising that Rolls-Royce cars have this capability. The Cullinan is powered by Rolls-Royce’s mighty 6.75L twin-turbo V12 engine delivering an astonishing 563hp and 627lb-ft of torque with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
And yet this isn’t a brand-new engine just made for the world’s newest and most luxurious SUV. All Rolls-Royce vehicles are powered by that same powertrain, just with different tuning. So it seems it’s only the form and common urban setting that helped us develop these preconceived notions of what Rolls-Royce cars could or should be doing.
Built for Modern Adventure:
Beyond raw power and size, the 2020 Cullinan is also a machine packed with state-of-the-art technologies that help make those adventures more enjoyable. Standard equipment includes things like night vision, wildlife and pedestrian crossing warnings, a cutting-edge 7×3 HD head-up display for the driver navigating the most challenging off-road terrain, and much more.
That’s all good for the driver, but Rolls-Royce cars often have their owners sitting in the rear, not the front. The elevated “Pavilion” seating means passengers sit higher up, enjoying incredible views of the wilderness and landscape around them. Enlarged side windows and a panoramic glass roof make the viewing experience all the more pleasurable.
Another key signature Rolls-Royce engineering feature aids in the off-roading world, and that’s the “Magic Carpet Ride” ride comfort brought by the architecture, suspension, and tied-in systems. Overall the 2020 Cullinan is built lighter than you might expect and is built on the latest self-leveling Rolls-Royce air suspension. This suspension system calculates by the second, varying the shock-absorber system to suit the wheels’ precise conditions. Add to that the brand-new double-wishbone front axle and 5-link rear axle, control, and agility are enough to leave any driver astounded considering the car’s relative size.
It’s Still a Rolls-Royce:
It certainly is built for an adventure, but the Cullinan is still carrying the Rolls-Royce name, which inevitably means many luxurious touches. Sumptuous materials, real-wood veneers, and other sublime finishes abound throughout the interior. Every corner of the car exudes craftsmanship and quality. Thoughtful details like carriage doors for easy ingress/egress, umbrellas built into the doors, and even the non-rotating Rolls-Royce center wheel caps.
The 2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan is a new generation of SUV, and indeed of Rolls-Royce. No longer confined to the paved boutique-lined avenues of the urban jungle, it is the first Roller to finally roam free and see the world!
